Larry Wheels is a 23 year old powerlifter and now aspiring bodybuilder.
He holds numerous powerlifting records in the 242 and 275 weight classes and a a phenomenal amount of muscle to show for it. In December he announced his intention to compete in his first bodybuilding show early in 2018 and has not been shy about posting posing videos on the internet.
Some have compared him to Stan “The Rhino” Efferding, who was a powerlifter turned bodybuilder, the main difference being that Larry is much younger. Of course it is impressive that someone so strong can be so lean, and Larry has never been coy about his steroid use. At 21 years Barbend reports that he was plagued by common teenage vices like alcohol and recreational drugs. Then he decided to make a change and “replace one vice with another, and that was steroids.”
When starting steroids he said he believed that “more is better,” taking up to 1,200 milligrams of testosterone, and at one point trenbolone, dianabol, and a “clone” of superdrol, all in the same sixteen-week cycle.
He experimented with 400mg doses of trenbolone acetate and 450mg doses trenbolone enanthate. Of course the repercussions were severe.
“I felt miserable. My stomach felt like there was a living rat eating away at my intestines.”
Now he says, all the experimentation has yielded him with a reliable stack.
“Test and anadrol, that is my bread and butter as of September last year. With anadrol, I have no notable side effects other than high blood pressure, which I can feel when I go to tie my shoes in the morning and my head blows up like a tomato.”
He said that, anadrol offers him, “by far the most strength (and) least side effects.”
Regardless of one’s opinions on steroids, it is refreshing to hear an athlete be open and honest about them. He also seems to be honest with himself, saying that he knows steroids are a “lifelong commitment.”
As far as his physique is concerned, he looks massive, well-conditioned, and well proportioned. His one weakness may be his triceps, a common lagging muscle among powerlifters, but one relatively easy to correct. The biggest question sill likely prove to be the sustainability of his training and pharmacological supplementation.
